Aldo Leopold’s description of passenger pigeon abundance in the 19th century

aptly describes their great numbers and ecological impact in the Historic era, but

what role did the passenger pigeon play during the Prehistoric period in eastern

North America? Zooarchaeologist Steven Kuehn summarizes passenger pigeon

finds from the archaeological record of Illinois and Wisconsin, including recent

discoveries from the Cahokia region, and discusses how the data provide insight on

the prehistory of the passenger pigeon.
